    Let's say you're a noob with a Windows problem, a video card problem, a game problem and some obvious software questions.
    In what section of the board would you place them?

    This is how the noob would think:

    Well it is not About our website and this Forum.
    Nope, it isn't Filesharing either.
    The Guestroom is obviously just for guests.
    It is not Kazaa Lite Related.
    There it is, I'll just post all my questions in General Problems and Questions.

    Then, with all the other noobs thinking the same way, they all post their similar questions in the same section.

    But then the noobs start thinking:

    Damn, at this rate my questions will never be answered!
    I'll just post around the same thing over and over and wait until someone answers. Hmmmm, that Offtopic sure comes in handy.

    You see, if you don't specify a board section it will tend to clog up with questions that will soon be left behind and people will ask them over and over.

    this problem will always occur. We can't make rooms for all possible problems. Although we will listen to all that is saying. but 1st we have to make the verifieds back up. Maybe then we get those rooms FC wants.
    BTW FC, think mods are still one of the people

    Actually if we had more rooms, people would know exactly where to post and wouldn't be posting around every section of the damn board.

    So my suggestion still stands:

    MOVIE room, MUSIC room, GAMES room, SOFTWARE room, HARDWARE room.

    Then there wouldn't be a need for more mods and they could still be lazy all the time!
    Don't forget FC's room too!
    Hey Mr. JellyPantz is back. LOL

    Need to merge some threads together...
    Becoming more like a quagmire.

    Which reminds me. Could anyone here post a picture of a 'quagmire' somewhere in this forum? (When I was a kid, my parents always told me that my room looked like a quagmire, but I never new what one realy looked like).
